Ashcroft: Loose nukes greatest threat 

Reality breaks in as soon as you leave the bubble—even for Ashcroft:

The possibility that al-Qaeda or its sympathizers could gain access to a nuclear bomb is the greatest danger facing the United States in the war on terrorism, Attorney General John Ashcroft said Thursday.
(via CNN)

It's always seemed to me that that likeliest scenario is a loose nuke or a dirty bomb in a shipping container. After all, if it works for illegal aliens, why not for AQ and its ilk?

And what has Bush done about this? Aside from claiming that port security should be privatized. And treating Homeland Security as a pork barrel program?

Zip. Zilch. Zero. Nada. Feeling safer?
